  1. those support only up to direct X 7, you'll need to upgrade. In fact, if your system has a card like that in it, chances are you won't even be able to use a modern gpu, probably time for an upgrade.
  2. The GeForce 2 supports DirectX 7 and Windows XP only supports up to DirectX 9.0c.
  3. use it as a fancy paperweight cos unless your desktop browsing or havent go a new game in the last ten years its useless
  4. No. It is a DirectX 7 card and is more than a decade old.

    Do you need a new card ... yes ... but you also need a new PC since it is also most-likely more than 10 years old.

    The GeForce FX / 5000 series were the first GeForce cards to fully support DirectX 9. The GeForce 8 / 8000 series were the first GeForce cards to support DirectX 10.

  5. To all the people who answered my question. Thank you. Those who mentioned that I should upgrade my pc.....yes I know, my pc should be in the Smithsonian!

    I would put all replies into the best answer category if I could.

  6. No need to throw it away though - it might be worth something one day. It's really impressive it's still running - do you know who the manufacturer is? I have an old 8-bit ISA parallel port, mint condition without a spec of dust on it. And an old Radeon 9700 that works except the fan. A nostalgic nerd might actually pay for these kinds of things ;-) I'd dust the hell out of it with a can of compressed air, then seal it in an anti-static bag.

    bahahahahahahahhahahahahaha i think i still have an old s3 pci vga card somewhere for when agp ports failed, guess i could use it for when pci-e ports died, i also threw out my old isa scsi card etc, will someone want it one day not a chance, i think my mobile phone would have more power than the computers back then.

    Really not about power. You think people pay millions for 1930s vintage cars because they're fast?
  9. Hey why are you guys making fun of my hobby! Old hardware is my hobby, GeForce 5600 Ultra v2, Ati radeon 8500 LE, Pentium 4 540J, GeForce 7900 GS, Athlon XP Barton core, etc.
